So much food.

Good food. Great service. Good price. They have alot of choices of smoked meats. I have never had a smoked hamburger before it is different. All the meat was really juicy. The staff was really friendly. The owner was there and went around and talked to every table.

We've eaten at this place many times over the years. The service is excellent. The food is very good. BBQ is not cheap and I think a lot of people go in expecting a Walmart or McDonalds price.

Enjoyable first visit today. Turkey & pulled pork were delicious. We ordered 2 platters with 2 choices of meat each, & shared with our 2 young kids. The meat portions were a little small, but no one left hungry. Ordering carefully & skipping soft drinks, a family of 4 can get out for about $30 to $35. Platters with 2... More

We were in the area for a weekend family get together. We decided to order take-out. We bought three pounds of burnt ends, beans, potato salad and cole slaw. It was so good. The burnt ends were wonderful- tender-no fat. The service was fantastic. We'll have Papa Bob's qgain

Upon landing in Kansas City and my relatives asking me what I'd like to eat, I responded BBQ and this is where they took me. We arrived close to closing time, but that didn't impact our experience at all! The staff was extremely pleasant and were thorough in explaining the menu and answering any questions we had. I tried the... More

We tried this place simply because of the hype from Man vs. Food, as we love the Food Channel and the Travel Channel. I got the burnt ends sandwich, and my husband got the destroyer. I thought mine was pretty good actually, but when I took a bite of my husband's destroyer sandwich.... Well... Not so much. He was able... More

Cute place inside, clean, wait staff helpful and friendly. Several varieties of their sauce from which to choose. One good spicy sauce and one with cinnamon and nutmeg in it that was super yummy. We shared a $13 deluxe platter. Cole slaw was good but beans were even better! Enjoyable.

After a group of 13 of us in town for fun were denied service at Rosco's down the road @ 6:40pm!!??... A nice gentleman sitting there recommended we go up the road to Papa Bob's.. We were all so glad we did! History, television shows, and the massive Ultimate Destroyer aside (which are all very cool parts of the restaurant)... More

TIP: If you love a zippy or hot BBQ sauce, be sure to try the Bob'Anero !!! Best variety of sauces. Terrific menu for such a small family place. Skip the LEGENDS restaurants and you will remember Bob's. The sides are generous. Wonderfully lean meats. We would definitely return. Bob shakes your hand in thanks for your patronage.

Was on the big eats show, made up a sandwich to get on there. Also on another show. NOT a good option for KC BBQ, I have been there a few times and never thought it was good. Beans best thing there. Better to go to other local BBQ places.
